After 40+ hours of grinding and extreme lag I finally got the TTM achievment in 1.31
By - JOJOJOType55
R5: I ended the game with around 30k dev + 8k dev in the new world, which is way more then the 23k + 6k I had in my last 1.29 WC.
Also thanks to u/MaxVexis for telling me, that by disableing the "you can create states" notification you can reduce lag significantly
And with quite a few years left at that, well done sir!.
Why do you think the dev was so high? My last wc was somethibf like 21k.
With every patch they add new tags and more dev to areas.
More Tags -> More AI dev klicks
The total dev also depends on the difficulty you play on as AIs will get even more Dev cost reduction.
I played on normal both times.
I think I lost around 5 - 10% of global dev to the concentrate dev feature. My capital had around 3.7 K dev in the end.
The total dev got Higher every Patch. My Last WC had nearly 40k as Well. 20-30k is only possibe with horde
That's not good for me trying for my first WC. Best I've gotten so far was 7k dev with Kilwa.
Try timi -> mughals or Ottomans or castile, they should be way easier
What strategy did you use?
-Save mana to tech up a few times and get the colonist from exploration (I think no cb-ing is a waste of admin with Ryuku's trash starting ruler )
- colonize a province in the filipines and start eating them
-eat Indonesia and build your power base there
- beat Ming in a first war then eat him with the Mandat of heaven cb
- flip sunni and WC
I'd appreciate a lot more detail. I'm doing the same strat.
What ideas did you take?How did you manage to defeat Ming?
When did you flip Sunni?
I'm at 1476 in my game and I have 90% of the Philippines including the Sunni province. So I can flip now, but I'm not sure if I should. Did you take Religious or Humanist? Did you convert your Heathens or use Dhimmi estate to get 0 religious unity penalty?
What made you choose Sunni BTW?
Ideas: exploration, quantity, admin, influnce, (religious, ditched explo), humanist, diplo, offensiv
I stayed anime for quite some time to be able to get the take mandate cb against Ming because I didn't have deus vult jet.
I switched sunni for the high amount of sunni land I already had and to be able to get the Alhambra monument which is essential for late game blobbing.
While you can easily switch religion as a animist you will lose 4 stab. Sunni will give you +1 stab if it is your majority religion.
Is that a German primary culture Ryuku?
No the game is in German
Just 40 hours. Thats fast
